[SOLVED] pip3 install pyindi-client Unable to find libindiclient.a #58131
I try to install pyindi-client as described in installing_pyndi_client .
When I try to pip install, for example, with
sudo pip3 install pyindi-client
I always get an error saying that setup.py cannot find libindiclient.a
Downloading pyindi-client-0.2.5.tar.gz (12 kB)

I searched for this file in the system but I didn't find it.
I found a few threads in this forum with similar problems but I could not extract any clue/solution for my case.
I must say I am used to python (about 15 years being my main programming language) but unfortunately I am dumb as a brick in linux/ubuntu.
So bear with me if this is a stupid question.

I am in a desktop PC running Ubuntu 20.04.1

I got libindiclient.a.
It was necessary to install first libindi-dev.
This was not indicated in the INDI Python Programming Tutorial I linked before.
I do not know whether the line was forgotten or the tutorial is outdated.
It could be the latter because at least one instruction rises a Deprecation Warning
